I know this thread is a few days old, but I just ran across an old video that I made right when I got the car. Only mods were Roush CAI and bama's 93 tune. Granted, my driving ability wasn't as good as it is now, but here is a 0-60 with stock 3.55 gears:
What good is power if you can't get it to the ground? 4.10's as stated make your first gear almost useless, your option is start out in 2nd which counters the whole reason you got gears in the first place (faster acceleration).
Look at the 2012 GT 500. Nice power but it can never get it's power to the ground. The new 2013 dropped even the lowly 3.55 factory gears and went with 3.31 to be able to get more power to the ground.
08 S197 GT Auto: FRPP Strut Tower Brace, FRPP Bullitt CAI, Bama 91-P Tune, VBX remaned valve body with Superior Transmission Shift Kit.
Pending upgrades: Shaftmasters Aluminum 3.5" DS, FRPP 3.73 gears, Axle back exahust (?)
